Discover Fun Science Writing Projects

Divide and conquer with jigsaw research. Break up those bulky research projects into smaller sections. Each student is responsible for being an expert of a different subtopic - researching, drafting, publishing, and teaching their peers. By the end, students contribute their learnings to a final group book and are knowledgeable about an entire topic.
Examples:
  • State Reports
  • Animal Reports
  • 13 Colonies
  • Presidents / World Leaders
  • Ancient Civilizations
  • States of Matter
  • Human Body Systems

Students work in groups. Like popcorn popping and bouncing around, a student starts a summary or narrative and then hands it off to another student to continue. Frequent changing of hands allows for fun and surprising shifts in the story and more complete information in a summary. This continues until the summary or narrative is complete.
Examples:
  • Tall Tales
  • Fractured Fairy Tales
  • Fables
  • Human Body Systems
  • Historical Fiction

This project provides a fun and engaging review opportunity and is flexible for any topic or subject. Working with a partner, one student writes a summary or narrative about what they've learned and then passes it to their partner who illustrates it. Students alternate writing and illustrating, reviewing content and solidifying learning as they go.
Examples:
  • Lesson Reviews
  • Book Reports
  • Check for Understanding
  • Figurative Language

Memory tricks and visual cues are a great way to retain information. Students identify the key learnings from a recent lesson and draw a visual image, comic, mneumonic, etc... to help remember them later. Students upload their drawings to a shared class book, allowing all students to use this collaborative book as a study aid and review tool.
Examples:
  • Grammar / spelling tricks
  • Science sketchbooks
  • Causes of key historical events

There are multiple ways to attack the same problem. Partners will each demonstrate their attack process by creating a visual model and explaining their process. Viewing these side by side approaches provides students with an example of another way to attack the same problem. This is a great way to generate student created learning guides.
Examples:
  • Long division
  • Multi-digit multiplication
  • Adding and subtracting integers
